    as one example of direct action.  And no, I don't mean storming a power plant.  I should have added "non-violent" in there because I think that's the way it should be done.  Putting yourself in the way of the machinery that is killing the planet along with large numbers of other people.

    And while you claim that our current system has the ability to solve the problems unless it actually does then I would say you are wrong.  There may be a theoretical solution, but having that actually happen is a completely different matter.

    There revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

      war of all against all.  because if its tree sitters v. a corp with its own pitchforks, I'd bet the latter will prevail.  

      •  The idea of a Hobbesian is based on what is (0+ / 0-)

        frankly a racist view of history and pre-history.  There was never a time when there was a war of all against all.  It's a myth based on an ideological view of "the savage" AKA barbarians AKA people who aren't white.  Mutual aid and cooperation is far more common in species of higher intelligence than is competition.
